The chef certainly knows how to put the finest ingredients together to make outstanding meals, including all the accompanying vegetables and potatoes.

2 dinner menus on offer, both excellent. Indulgence menu offers extra special choice. If venison on, thoroughly recommend. Shin beef on the 1881 menu was melt in the mouth. Lovely.

A good selection of dishes to suit all tastes, well presented and always hot. The breakfasts with a wide choice from fish dishes to the traditional English really set you up for the day. The evening meal well balanced with interesting combinations . Have eaten previously in Michelin starred restaurant and felt this standard should be awarded here.

We have awaited a visit to 1881 for many months and finally made the visit a couple of days before Christmas as our son was home. The staff are polite, but suggest training on cocktails needed! Asked for water twice! We went with the Indulgence menu at £37.50, little disappointed especially with the chefs intermediate course, a sorbet!!!! None of... More
